LONDON Jan 10 Messaging app Snapchat said it
would make London the home of its international operations,
delivering another vote of confidence in Britain's technology
credentials as the country prepares to leave the European Union.
The company, which has 150 million daily users globally,
will book sales in the UK and in other countries where it has no
local entity in Britain rather than routing them through lower
tax jurisdictions like Ireland and Luxembourg as some other U.S.
tech companies do.
Snap Inc said the UK's strong creative industries made the
country "a great place to build a global business".
"We believe in the UK creative industries," Claire Valoti,
general manager of Snap Group in the UK, said on Tuesday.
"The UK is where our advertising clients are, where more
than 10 million daily Snapchatters are, and where we've already
begun to hire talent."
